Yes, you can use the old antenna. However, some new antennas are specially designed to better capture digital TV signals. And the direction, angle, distance, and type of digital signals in your area could influence your choice of antenna. HDTV is a picture format, not a signal format. Most likely a TV with an HDTV picture format already has a digital tuner (ATSC) rather than only an analog tuner (NTSC). However, if it is just a monitor, then you may have to attach a tuner to it, or attach a tuner to your computer, and the computer to the monitor.
Actually, there is no such thing as an "HDTV" tuner. There are analog and digital tuners. All HDTV is digital, but not all digital is going to be HDTV. In Feb 2009 the U.S. Government has mandated that all broadcasters will cease transmitting in analog format and begin transmitting their signals over the air in digital format only. This signal requires an ATSC type tuner (digital) to demodulate the digital signal and display it on your television screen. All TVs manufactured for use in the U.S. from 1 Jan 2006 must have an ATSC tuner. Older TVs with the older style NTSC tuner (analog) will require a converter box to demodulate the digital signals.

You would need a box with a digital tuner built into it. Samsung used to make one that was sold at Best Buy a few years ago that retailed for $180. They no longer make it since all TV's now have that digital tuner built in. If you can get your hands on one of those tuners you will need an HDMI cable and possibly a stronger antenna. Other than that there isn't a way to do it.
If you run the antenna under test in the receiving mode, then while it is rotated, you'll monitor signals received by the antenna under test. If you run the antenna under test in the transmit mode, then while you rotate it, you'll monitor signals received by a different antenna on the test range. Either way, the varying signal must be monitored at the receiving end of the link. It's a lot more convenient, and a simpler configuration, to have the signal monitor and the rotation/excitation controls for the antenna under test in the same place, in order to react appropriately to any funny things noted during the test run.
The difference is resolution. at Normal TV has a resolution of 480. a PC monitor can go way higher than 480. Probably around 1440 or more. But that's the difference. A higher Pixel count. Probably a different Refresh rate too. Technically, a television has tuners; a monitor does not. The monitor doesn't have a tuner it would need help in order to work with an antenna. The help would come in the form of an external digital tuner or a digital-to-analog converter.
